The annual fundraiser for animals in need will take on a new format during COVID-19
Cornwall, ON – Cupcakes aren’t cancelled, but National Cupcake Day™ will look different this year as the nation-wide fundraiser goes virtual in support of the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society, as well as participating SPCAs, humane societies and rescue groups across Canada.
To keep people safe during COVID-19, the Ontario SPCA Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Animal Centre is asking supporters to raise funds for animals in need in their community by baking a difference at home with the National Cupcake Day Decorating Contest, presented by Milk-Bone® and Robin Hood®.
“National Cupcake Day is the sweetest day of the year, and we need your help to support vulnerable animals across Canada,” says Carol Link, Manager, Ontario SPCA Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Animal Centre. “We’re challenging you to a bake off, so pre-heat those ovens and get ready to show off your cupcake decorating talents.”
The cupcake with the most votes in each of the four categories wins, so ask your family and friends to visit the National Cupcake Day website before Feb. 22 to vote for your creation and make a donation to your online personal fundraising page.
